DSNW YANA Youth Champions

DSNW YANA Youth Champions

You Are Not Alone= YANA is Dementia Support Northwest’s mantra, and we are looking to our youth to help us spread it far and wide by becoming YANA Youth Champions!

Our Mission at DSNW is to support people with dementia and their caregivers, families and friends, through education and working with community partners to expand and strengthen resources.”

We are seeing more sandwich care giving (caring for small children while also caring for aging parents) it is imperative we all work together to make the journey a little easier to walk. By educating our youth, we will not only be equipping them with tools to have better relationships with their loved ones experiencing dementia, we also hope to inspire compassion for our aging population!

Reach out to your friends, family and schools and encourage them to join you in becoming a DSNW YANA Youth Champion!!!
